Wow, you keep them coming with dynamic color and appeal. The contrast between dark and light creates nice negative and positive space. Allowing the highlighted beak and eye stand out nicely against the black background. Very nice contrast, thanks

I like this, very, very black and grey colors. Beak for of sharpness(being the same as the bird has bright intellegence. Parallel white lines in the back of the art. Orange cole of the beak and oval sort of eyes.

The way you have used so much dark and yet made this bird stand out is amazing! Your placement is perfect and he is well drawn and the light just shines on him.

Great work. Very deserving of a winning piece here. Technique, paint strokes, composition, mixture of various colors are remarkable. Background goes very well with the bird. Great job!

I love the expressive technique you utilized to create this dramatic and compelling piece. Your color blending is superb as is your use of light and shadow. This piece was very deserving of a first place finish. Kudos my young friend.

Comment from Susan F. M. T.

A very beautiful picture of this male Anhinga in the twilight with the fading light reflected in his eye, shining on his dark plumage & through his deep yellow beak. Created by your artist's eye for composition very skilful brushwork beautiful choice blending & application of your colours in bringing this bird to life.

Oh my goodness Lucas! You have created Sandra's beautiful anhinga so very well! I am very impressed ! I love the way you did the lighting here, in the low key style, emphasizing the beautiful eye and that open bill! I can see why you won the bird art contest! I'm proud of you ,my friend! I wish I had a six to award this , it's absolutely beautiful and I love your poem too! Congratulations on your win!
